Jean Shrimpton was a celebrated model of the 1960s, whose face appeared on the cover of top fashion magazines in Britain and America, but she brought her career to an abrupt end at the age of 30. This autobiography describes her childhood, her discovery at 17 by David Bailey, and their relationship and subsequent parting when she met the actor Terence Stamp. She tells how, three years later, she left him and went to America and started another affair, and how more recently, running a small hotel in Penzance with her husband and son, she has found the happiness that eluded her in the past.
